Competition! Win 1 of 2 Penelope Red Scarves

I am very excited to announce that I have a brand new Penelope Red Competition!

To celebrate the new Autumn/Winter styles that are now available in the Penelope Red Etsy store, I will give away two handmade Penelope Red Scarves. Two lucky winners will win one scarf each. You just have to choose which one you prefer!

The Penelope Red "Red Lantern" Scarf

Or the Penelope Red "Blue Nightingale" Scarf

The details of how to enter are below.

Please take a moment to look at each scarf in detail:

Red Lantern Scarf:

This scarf has been made from several beautiful fabrics, including a Japanese printed cotton in black, white and red; a silk/linen blend in bright red; and two black silk satins- one of these is used for the lining.

Measurements: 18cm x 155cm (7 x 61 inches)

As you can see from the photos, there are numerous ways to drape and wear this scarf. Penelope Red scarves can make any outfit come to life! Even a plain black top and a pair of jeans.

Blue Nightingale Scarf:

This scarf has been made from various fabrics including: bright blue silk; printed silk satin; printed cotton stripe; oriental embroidered silk satin; and black silk satin for the lining.

Measurements: 21cm x 155cm (8.5 x 61 inches)

I especially love the above look! You can do this with either scarf, as they are both long and soft enough.

How to enter:
1. Choose which scarf you would like to own. Please only choose one.
2. Either become a fan of the Penelope Red facebook page, and then comment on the posting where it says:
"Competition! Win 1 of 2 Penelope Red Scarves!"
Become a follower of this blog, and while you are logged in, comment on this posting. (The "follower" widget is under the slide show to the right)
3. In the comments, just write "Red" for the "Red Lantern Scarf", or "Blue" for the "Blue Nightingale Scarf".
4. At the end of this month, I will draw the winning names from a hat, and the two winners will be contacted via their facebook or follower details!

Postage for the winners will be, of course, free.

Good luck to everyone who enters!
